Learn to Cook with Confidence with Haven’s Kitchen
Artisan Books partnered with me to support an exciting new cookbook!*
I have mentioned many times how I am a complete self taught cook. While I love to cook and it’s my hobby, there is so much for me to learn! I would really love to get better at using a knife, decorating cakes, cooking rice, and so much more! I do the best I can with what I know right now. I recently started reading THE HAVEN’S KITCHEN COOKING SCHOOL: Recipes and Inspiration to Build a Lifetime of Confidence in the Kitchen By Alison Cayne
ABOUT THE BOOK
Alison Cayne takes the essential skills gleaned from her popular cooking school classes at Haven’s Kitchen into her first comprehensive teaching cookbook, The Haven’s Kitchen Cooking School.
Alison Cayne is the owner of Haven’s Kitchen, a cooking school, café, and event space in New York City. Cayne started Haven’s Kitchen as a place to inspire and educate people about food and sustainability issues. She serves on the boards of Edible Schoolyard NYC and the Food and Environment Reporting Network and has been featured in such publications as the New York Times, Vogue, Elle, Domino, Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, and Goop.
Cayne equips home cooks with fundamental building blocks they need to feel confident and at ease in the kitchen. The Haven’s Kitchen Cooking School includes 100 delicious recipes carefully chosen by Cayne and her expert staff with food inspired by global cuisine and a modern sensibility of how we like to eat today. Cayne says, “I’ve filled this book with what our students can see, smell, and taste when they take a class at Haven’s Kitchen. And though this book may not be able to provide the immediacy of an actual class, the printed page provides other benefits, among them comprehensiveness, easy referencing, and an opportunity to return to the pages and to the recipes again and again. This cookbook is meant to teach and inspire you: it is not a list of recipes or a photo collage of unattainable food.”
